Welcome to the homepage of the

Woodlands Art League

One looks at life as a gift, a painting of lights and darks, each defining the other, not a series of good and bad things.  Giving thanks, and often, frees the spirit and makes the heart secure.

The safety and health of our members is paramount.  We appreciate your patience and support until we can get together again soon!

December 2020


Happy Holidays to all our members and friends!  Whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or some other holiday, may it be a happy occasion in this somewhat difficult year!  I hope you find ART in all you do throughout the coming year, as well.

The Woodlands Art League is beginning to occupy the space at 701 Sawdust Rd., The Woodlands.  It is a large room, with many possibilities for our use, now and for some time to come.  We’re still trying to put together the plans and schedules, so if you have any ideas you’d like to share, please contact any board member to let us know what you think.  The league is only as active as its members, so help us make WAL a vibrant and important part of The Woodlands’ art scene. 

We understand that many of our members are unable or unwilling to become “active” yet.  But the board is hopeful that we have begun to turn a corner and move into a healthier future.  And, if we don’t start working now on what we would like to accomplish, time will surely get away from us.  If you are choosing to stay home and support us remotely, God bless you, stay healthy and safe.  If you are taking part in any of our programs or events, be safe, stay alert, and do what you need to do to stay an active and participating member. 

Now, for a bit of a challenge, we may need your help.  The new space is just that…space.  While we do have some equipment, panels, shelves, chairs, and such, we may need to secure other items to make the space useable in the many ways we want to.  One way you can make a difference is to donate to WAL this December.  It will help us purchase what we need and can provide you with a tax benefit as we are a 501c.3 organization.  Your charitable donation is welcome any time, but consider us in your year-end giving, if you can.  You can donate through the website or just contact a board member to ask how you can give to WAL.  Any amount will help and will be appreciated.

Also, if you’d like to help WAL in other ways, VOLUNTEER!  There are many opportunities open and needing people to help make them happen.  Contact a board member for further information.

As we approach the end of the calendar year, let us look forward to being together in the future, sharing art and friendship like we used to.  Best Wishes, and Happy New Year!

How to get to the New WAL Facility!  If you are looking at Hobby Lobby, look to the right to see a strip center across the way.  Look to the left of that and see a blue and silver building.  Then look further to the left and see a silver two-story building.  WAL is in that silver building, and our entrance is on the right side of the building.  We're still working on the opening and our hours, so stay tuned!

How to Help WAL With (Almost) No Effort

Did you know that many retailers offer programs that will donate portions of your purchase to non-profit organizations like WAL?  Amazon Smile, for example, is one such program.  If you're going to order something, please consider making the Woodlands Art League your charity of choice and share some joy this Holiday Season!

Art Show Ending

The display that we had at the South County Community Center on Lake Robbins will no longer be allowed per county official's request.  

Thanks to all who have participated in the past.  We will be looking for a new places to display our art.  So, if you know of somewhere, let us know!  

The Monday Morning Portrait Group

We've been advised that the Oklahoma Community Center will remain closed indefinitely.  So, the Monday Paintgroup is suspended until we can meet safely.    

We're trying some new things!

We've added a bit of flash to the homepage with a couple of images.  Keep and eye out here for information on how to be a "featured" artist with the banner on our homepage.  We're looking forward to seeing your work!










Woodlands Area Art Trading Cards Group

Create, Trade, and Collect!

We want to let you know that ATC has

gone postal!

Art Trading Cards are tiny gems - 2-1/2" X3-1/2" - that you make  and trade with others. Any medium can be used, paints, collage, fabrics and more as long as they can fit into a standard trading card pocket. Create some to trade on the spot, or bring some with you in any state of completion. 

As we are a small group, each person creates 2 cards for each member per month.  We mail them out to each other at the beginning of the month.  Everyone has the option of doing what they want, but we often agree on a topic for at least one of the cards.

What you do is up to you!  Creativity is worth sharing and this is a perfect way to not only share your art, but get others' art in return.  What a fun way to introduce yourself to new artist-friends!

This group is sponsored for the community by the  Woodlands Art League. There is no charge and membership is not required. Adults and older teens with parent are welcome. Bring a friend or two!

For more info contact group leader,

Teri Valentine, at terilynn248@aol.com
